November Construction Update
There has been a flurry of activity in our new spaces since the last construction update. Each day the changes became more and more dramatic as the finishing touches were completed. As promised, our partners, Ekman Construction, delivered the keys to Moose the Cougar on November 1 and we also received the certificate of occupancy for both spaces - we couldn’t have been more delighted!
The culmination was sharing this delight with the students during community meeting on Monday, November 4, when they had the chance to parade through the Science & Innovation and Athletic & Wellness Centers for the first time before convening in the gym for a quick cheer and school photo. That afternoon, the boys’ and girls’ middle school basketball teams were able to practice on the new courts - each enjoying a full court at the same time!
While we continue to finish out other spaces, students have been able to use the courts. Most of the equipment and furniture has been delivered and continues to be installed. When students return from Thanksgiving break on December 2 they will have full access to the new spaces in both Athletic and Wellness and Science and Innovation - kids, coaches, and teachers couldn’t be happier!
